Trashball 032807: 1953


The dollar, it seems, used to go pretty far, as these two 1953 receipts bear out. "Charms 3 Boxes" for a mere $1.78 at the People's Drug Store and a full month of newspapers—delivered, no less—for the trifling sum of $1.40.

Recovered in Washington, DC.

$1.40 for a month of newspapers?? That is highway robbery! :) Or maybe newspapers are a dying breed now - I just subscribed to the Wash Times for $10.50 for a year delivered.
